Kühlseggen Castle, one of the most impressive moated castles in the region, is a moated castle converted into a private house with a large outer bailey, whose beginnings lie in the 15th/16th century. Until 1962, the moated castle was not inhabited, and its buildings fell into disrepair. Then these were extensively renovated and rebuilt to be used as a private residence.

Until well into the 19th century, the buildings of the castle complex stood on two islands: a high heaped one with the manor house and a second island on which the outer bailey stood. An outdoor tour is possible outside the moat on a circular path. The castle itself is privately owned and cannot be visited.

LVR-Freilichtmuseum Kommern

History comes alive at the LVR open-air museum in Kommern: Chickens run around between the houses and peck at the ground, cattle graze peacefully in the pasture and fresh bread smells waft from the bakery. Visitors can wander through five different assemblies and their buildings. The journey through time in the Rhineland begins at the end of the 15th century and ends with the 20th century. Exhibitions and various festivals and markets, such as the Anno Dazumal fair, round off the museum experience.
